Abstract The primary objective of this 2015/16/17 Project was to provide an understanding of UK produced biomass properties, how these vary and what causes this variability. This document contains the Appendices to the Final Report from the second Phase (2016/17) of the Characterisation of Feedstocks (CofF) project, Deliverable D12. This deliverable (D12) is one of three to be provided under the second phase (2016/17) of the Characterisation of Feedstocks Project. It is supported by the Excel dataset (D11). A synthesis and summary of the findings from the whole project, Phases 1 plus 2, is provided separately (Deliverable D13). The purpose of this deliverable D12 is to report
  • the findings from the 2016/17 investigations into the impact of harvest time on the properties of UK produced Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) willow and Miscanthus;
  • the impact of variety on UK produced SRC willow properties, and;
  • the impact of four different types of commonly used storage types over time on UK produced Miscanthus properties.
